Dr. Stephen Hauser's research as a physician-scientist has revolutionized our understanding of the genetics, immunology, and treatment of MS. It was Dr. Hauser's research that led to the development of a b-cell therapy for MS, which has been shown to be highly effective in treating all forms of MS and the only treatment approved for treating progressive MS.
Dr. Hauser joins me this week, to discuss some of the pivotal moments in his remarkable career.
Dr. Hauser's memoir, The Face Laughs While the Brain Cries: The Education of a Doctor, goes well beyond the expected autobiography and offers us an opportunity to silently observe the process of scientific discovery. If you're curious about how we know what we know about multiple sclerosis, but you aren't ready to make your way through the dry prose of a scientific journal, this is the book for you.
The World Health Organization has added three disease-modifying therapies for MS to its Essential Medicines List. We'll share the details and tell you why this groundbreaking decision is so important.
We're sharing the results from a clinical trial that provide evidence that starting a disease-modifying therapy early slows MS progression.
And we'll remind you that August 17th is Burgers to Beat MS day at A&W locations throughout Canada.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
